You Don't Know What You Don't Know

Do you know that you don't know?



You don't know what you don't know! How many times have I heard my business mentor say this to her other clients? I think I've lost count, but it's quite a big number. And yes, she used to say that to me at the start too ...

There's lots of things you don't know, so maybe we can help you find out!

As many readers will know, we like to work closely with business mentors as we often know what those clients don't know. How? Because we employ the latest accounting software to connect the business owners with their finances.

"Don't be blind to your finances!"

Yes, there is such a plethora of other things seeking your attention when you run a business, but it's dangerous to be blind to your finances. You don't need to rush off to an evening class to learn about double-entry bookkeeping, instead you just need to enrol our help.

So what do we recommend:

  1. The adoption of a cloud-based bookkeeping package, such as Xero

  2. Ensure the bank is feeding directly into the bookkeeping package

  3. Bolt on some useful apps such as Workflowmax, ReceiptBank and Essendon Projections

  4. Monitoring your results against key performance indicators

  5. Use Essendon to administer all the above

  6. Have regular advisory meetings

So instead of swatting up on double entry bookkeeping get out outside and enjoy the summer. Not only will a safe dose of vitamin D do wonders for your health, you will be able to relax more because you know your finances are being monitored.

"So if you don't know what you don't know, do you know that you don't know?"

Until next time ...
